NEW MEDIUM for the Lampwork glass Artist ~ Enamel decals for Lampwork glass, AND fusing. Applied cold, and fused to the surface, on flat glass in the kiln, or beads and sculpture in the flame, or both! The decal fits your substrate like skin; not only does the binding agent hold the enamel together. When these decals are heated in warm water, the binding agent becomes sticky (like glue), and stretches, and shapes to your form.
1. Works well with COE 104, especially clear & white (on clear the decal may fade out if the image is not heavily saturated)
2. Bullseye & System 96 have had good results in testing.
3. Borosilicate glass does fuse; the colors tend to burn out more, and get pixilated if over fired. Encasing can help hold the color.
WHAT YOU GET WITH THIS PURCHASE: One sheet of decals, one page showing you the color range (as shown in the picture), instructions, and a lot of inspiration!!
The blues are blue, and oranges are true; pink is more on the mauve side.
Purple is kind of hard to get, but is possible (may come out a little dark).
Green is good (sparkle-mica-ish!!). Peace symbols are fun (and, a good idea) The background is transparent; only the figure is colored. Colors shown are for reference purposes only. The colors will vary on the finished piece; depending on how you fuse the images to your work.
